All Progressives Congress (APC) spokesman, Timi Frank, has said that the party is a mess under the chairmanship of John Odigie-Oyegun.

Frank also accused Odigie-Oyegun of trying to intimidate him out of the APC due to his constant criticism of the party’s leadership.

He made the comments on Thursday, October 27, while speaking to journalists in Abuja about a five-man disciplinary committee created to investigate a petition written against him by a member of the Akwa Ibom APC.

“I am not aware of any committee. Up till now, I have not been served any notice or any letter at all. And again, if that is true, I am still waiting to receive any invitation from any panel,” he said.

“I do not know who set up that committee whether it was a committee that was approved by the entire party structure or by Oyegun alone, but the names of the committee members are not known to me.

“The name of the petitioner is also not known to me; it is obvious he is working for his sponsors. And who are his sponsors? It is the handiwork of my national chairman, Oyegun. And this is happening because of my consistent calls for him to do the right thing or resign.

“I will not be intimidated by anyone in this party. I am a Nigerian. I am a loyal party member. I believe in this party, I have hope in this party and I will do everything I can to save this party because as at today, the party under Oyegun is under a total mess.

“There are so many party members who know the truth. There are so many NWC members that disagree with the chairman not because they love Timi Frank but because they know the truth because in an unjust society, silence is a crime," he added.
